Knew nothing about Jerash before visiting, but very glad that we came. Wasn't expecting much, especially since the site is surrounded by the current city. The Hadrian Arch & Hippodrome are interesting by themselves, but that's even before the site actually begins. The entire site...More

The ancient ruins at Jerash are definitely worth a visit of 2 to 3 hours. The site has a real feel of what it once looked like in the past. The 2 museums should not be missed. You'll need to walk but it's not strenuous....More

The Roman Amphitheatre is part of the Jerash Ruins complex, so you will see it when you visit the site. The amphitheatre is really amazing, and well preserved, as are many other parts of the site.

I would advice Jerash which is much more beautiful and big than Kerak. I think it is nearer as well.
